    Before weapons systems can be deployed, air armament engineers must solve problems in areas such as weapon separation, aircraft stability and control, and electromagnetic interference. The Institute for High-Performance Computing Applications to Air Armament enhances these efforts, supplying new engineering analysis capabilities, and promoting the sharing of engineering codes, models, and data.

    A loosely coupled suite of physics-based geotechnical, geospatial, hydrogeologic, and thermal simulations are integrated into a virtual testing facility aimed at resolving terrain-related warfighter problems. This article describes the key aspects of the research conducted by the US Institute for Maneuverability and Terrain Physics Simulation and provides two examples of the virtual testing facility applied to subsurface threat detection.

    How can we differentiate between an underground stone and a landmine? A class of new numerical methods aims to address this question using globally convergent-rather than locally convergent-algorithms for coefficient inverse problems. Numerical results model imaging of the spatially distributed dielectric permittivity function in an environment where antipersonnel landmines are embedded along with stones. View full abstract»

  • Modeling Spiking Neural Networks on SpiNNaker

    SpiNNaker is a massively parallel architecture with more than a million processing cores that can model up to 1 billion spiking neurons in biological real time. Here, we offer an overview of our research project and describe the first experiments with these test chips running spiking neurons based on Eugene Izhikevich's model. Note that we're not targeting artificial neural networks (such as perceptrons or multilayer networks) that were inspired by, but don't model, biologically plausible neural systems.

  • Technical Writing Tools for Engineers and Scientists

    Technical writing poses specific challenges; to meet them, LaTeX goes beyond business-oriented word processors and makes it easier to create complex documents. Here, I'll compare a typical LaTeX installation to a generic business-oriented word processor-specifically, Microsoft Word (part of the Office suite), but it could just as easily be Corel WordPerfect or OpenOffice Writer (a free software package). This isn't an exhaustive list of word processors, nor is it intended to be due to space limitations. Some of the newer free online writing tools-such as Google Docs or Zoho Writer-are basically online variations of more traditional business-oriented word processors, and they're not specifically aimed at technical writing. Finally, it's not my intention here to disparage business-oriented word processors; they're sophisticated tools that are very good at their intended purpose: producing business documents.
